Double award celebration for transport charity
A transport charity serving the communities of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire is celebrating after winning two awards.
The Tenbury Transport Trust has won the Best Community Transport Charity - West Midlands award at the Acquisition International Magazine’s 2021 Non-Profit Organisation Awards.
And in a double success, the trust also collected the Local Charity Award Judges’ Choice at the Pride of Malvern Hills Community Awards 2020 - an awards ceremony delayed for 12 months due to Covid
The trust, based in Tenbury Wells, has served the local community for more than 10 years, providing a safe, professional, service for people who don’t have adequate transport of their own.
Nominations for the Acquisition International Magazine awards are made in several ways, including through the magazine’s online nomination form from magazine subscribers, its online visitors and social media following.
Judges make their decision based on the nominee’s client dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, client feedback and business performance.
An awards spokesman said: “After weeks of careful consideration by our judging panel and research team, I am delighted to confirm that Tenbury Transport Trust has been awarded: Best Community Transport Charity - West Midlands in the 2021 Non-Profit Organisation Awards. Congratulations on this fabulous achievement.
“I hope this accolade demonstrates how valued your contribution to the non-profit organisation industry is by Acquisition International Magazine and that you might take a moment to celebrate your efforts.”
The Pride of Malvern Hills Community Awards were launched by Malvern Hills District Council to highlight the work of unsung heroes by recognising dedicated members of the community who have improved the lives and wellbeing of residents.
Judges make their decisions based on nominations from the public for individuals, organisations or projects. The trust’s award was received by Angela Brinton, patron of Tenbury Transport Trust.
Wendy White, chair of trustees at Tenbury Transport Trust, said: “We are delighted to have won these awards - they recognise the important role we are continuing to play in providing a much valued service to those in our community who are experiencing transport difficulties.
“Our drivers and office staff are integral to the success of the trust and fulfilling our commitment to helping people meet their transport needs. We are living in a rural community where people often don’t have access to their own transport and rely on others to help them get out and about, go shopping and be able to attend appointments.”
